A type of old military coat, the tielocken: both precursor to and contemporary of the first trench coats. The idea for this version was to combine the formal trapping of a topcoat, say, with the protective nature of all-weather outer-wear. It has the body of a trench, then, but the collar and lapel of a tailored overcoat.
It features a version of the split-sleeve: a smart inset front and an accommodating, movement-permitting raglan back. And, with no buttons, focus falls instead to the belt. Here, the belt features three sliding or tongueless buckles, working in unison to provide a satisfying and intuitive means to resist the elements.
